A bow shock forms around the Constellation Program's 327-foot-tall Ares I-X test rocket traveling at supersonic speed. The parts used to make the Ares I-X booster flew on 30 different shuttle missions ranging from STS-29 in 1989 to STS-106 in 2000. Photo courtesy of Scott Andrews, Canon October 28, 2009

Ares I-X simulated crew module and launch abort system flight hardware arrives at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This hardware will complete the nose of the rocket. Nearly 150 sensors on the hardware will measure aerodynamic pressure and temperature at the nose of the rocket and contribute to measurements of vehicle acceleration and angle of attack. The data will help NASA understand whether the design is safe and stable in flight, a question that must be answered before astronauts...

With more than 12 times the thrust produced by a Boeing 747 jet aircraft, the Constellation Program's Ares I-X test rocket roars off Launch Complex 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The rocket produces 2.96 million pounds of thrust at liftoff and goes supersonic in 39 seconds. Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann October 28, 2009

The Ares I-X launch abort system (LAS) simulator joins rocket elements from NASA Glenn in the cavernous Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center. The 53-foot (16.15-meter) LAS, along with the crew module (CM) simulator will make up the nose of Ares I-X. The LAS and CM simulators were designed and built at NASA Langley Research Center.

NASA and ATK successfully conducted an Ares I main cluster parachute test at the U.S. Army Proving Grounds in Yuma, Arizona. The test was conducted on May 20, 2009. It involved three 150-feet diameter parachutes lowering a 41,500 test weight to the desert floor. The parachute system will be used to recover the first stage of Ares I. It will also be used to recover the first stage of Ares I-X following its test flight this fall. Photo Credit: U.S. Army Proving Ground

NASA and ATK test engineers at the US Army's Yuma Proving Ground prepare for the first test of all three Ares I main parachutes. The 41,500lb weight will be dropped from an Air Force C-17 from 10,000 feet. The main parachutes will slow the descent of the spent first stage and allow for ocean splashdown.

The solid rocket booster recovery ship Freedom Star, towing the spent first stage of NASA's Ares I-X rocket, traverses the Banana River along the shore of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Across the river, in the background, is the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Following the launch of the Ares I-X flight test, the booster splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean and was recovered. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett October 30, 2009
